Something random

I just got done watching the rocketboom video over at crooks and liars: Why we do what we do.

It's hard to watch really. People doing their best to remain ignorant, and you can tell by the way they are talking, that they are getting more so by each generation. Listen to the teenage girl. She speaks bushese fluently.

It is scary that people don't know that under god was added to the pledge in the 1954 because of tail-gunner joe and his peeps. Its also scary that they don't realize the line on our money "in god we trust" was added later too. Adopted as the national motto in 1956, it was put on the money during the civil war. In 1864 the first coins were struck with that motto. It didn't hit the paper money until 1957.
